Description

There's something in the water and Donald's got to look after it. On a quiet Scottish Island, local man Donald must navigate the dangerous social waters as mermaids are spotted. Unable to reject his inherent decency, Donald helps a stricken mermaid and engages the assistance of Irish incomer Kiera. When a fisherman is killed, they flee the growing rage as the locality rips itself apart in the name of revenge. With the local presbytery demanding a response, glamour models challenging the reserved image of the island and a rejected child hunting these new mammals, can Donald and Kiera keep a human fish under wraps and out of sight? Or will they succumb to the sharp end of a harpoon? Keep a good watch 'cos something's stirring the water.

Author Biography

GR Jordan is a self-published author who finally decided at forty that in order to have an enjoyable lifestyle, his creative beast within would have to be unleashed. His books mirror that conflict in life where acts of decency contend with self-promotion, goodness stares in horror at evil and kindness blind-side us when we at our worst. Corrupting our world with his parade of wondrous and horrific characters, he highlights everyday tensions with fresh eyes whilst taking his methodical, intelligent mainstays on a roller-coaster ride of dilemmas, all the while suffering the banter of their provocative sidekicks. A graduate of Loughborough University where he masqueraded as a chemical engineer but ultimately played American football, Gary had worked at changing the shape of cereal flakes and pulled a pallet truck for a living. Watching vegetables freeze at -40'C was another career highlight and he was also one of the Scottish Highlands "blind" air traffic controllers. These days he has graduated to answering a telephone to people in trouble before telephoning other people to sort it out. Having flirted with most places in the UK, he is now based in the Isle of Lewis in Scotland where his free time is spent between raising a young family with his wife, writing, figuring out how to work a loom and caring for a small flock of chickens. Luckily his writing is influenced by his varied work and life experience as the chickens have not been the poetical inspiration he had hoped for!
